Introducing the new, and wildly amazing Corvette Z06! The 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06 is expected to give manufactures such as Ferrari and Lamborghini a run for their money. With the engine located in the rear, it looks like how any proper supercar should look. While it inherits the best amenities and technology from the Stingray, its performance and handling will be heightened and sharpened. Thanks to the Corvettes track focused, mid engine power plant, it allows this Vette to have a center of balance that corners and sticks to the tarmac like glue.
The new Corvette Z06 receives a special engine that produces that Ferrari-like exhaust note we are all familiar with. Its naturally aspirated 5.5-liter V-8 features a flat-plane crank and revs to 8,600 rpm. Compared to a previous rev limiter of 6,500 rpm, Having that much more room on your gauge cluster in between shifts is something any auto motive enthusiast can appreciate. The engine produces a plentiful 670 horsepower, which is more than enough to keep up with, if not beat most supercars.
Chevy hasn’t officially revealed the new Corvette Z06’s pricing yet, so we can only speculate on how much it’ll cost. Its front-engine predecessor started at about $25,000 more than the base model, so we think it’s safe to add that number to the starting price of the 2022 Corvette, which starts at around $62k. That means the 2023 Z06 will likely open at around $90,000 when it eventually goes on sale.
